Brett Morgen, “the leading revolutionary of American documentary film,” according to the Wall Street Journal, will direct, produce and write the untitled feature biopic about the world’s most beloved primatologist — Dr. Jane Goodall. Known for the Emmy®-nominated documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck and the Academy® Award-nominated movie On the Ropes, the visionary director will draw on recently re-discovered archive film from Dr. Goodall’s early research at Gombe National Park in Tanzania during the 1960s. More than 250 hours of 16 mm film have been uncovered to create a compelling and intimate story about how revolutionary research turned this maverick into one of the legends of modern science.
